Skip to comments.Beck & Carlson Brawl: No, I Did Not Believe Ted Cruz Was “Anointed By God” To Be President
Posted on 01/09/2017 8:51:56 PM PST by nodwam
Tucker Carlson and Glenn Beck brawled over his inflammatory rhetoric on Trump, his support of Ted Cruz, what hes learned from the election, why Clinton lost and why he thinks Trump should be given a chance. The interview starts off with Beck denying he said Cruz was anointed by God to be president.
Beck said, I never said he was anointed by God to be president of the United States. I do believe that people are called, all of us are, youre called for your job, Im called for my job, all of us are called for a specific time. That doesnt mean that he is the only one who can do it. It doesnt mean any of that. And it certainly doesnt mean that God is going to make that happen. We all have to play our roles.

Beck?... Beck? Didn’t he used to have a.....
Oh, never mind. Can’t place him.
Beck and Carlson both looked good. Beck like a man who’s ‘been there and done that’ and Carlson like a man willing to listen. It worked.
The heavy confrontational stuff had it’s place in this no holds bared election... now it’s time to take a breather... pull back a little. The ‘dirty jobs’ guy was amazing too... Isolation... he gets it...
Glenn Beck climbed up the pole a bit to far. He has revealed himself to be unstable and bizarre. Anyone who pays any prolonged attention to him is the sort of individual that is susceptible to joining a cult
Mister Stabby needs to withdraw from the public sphere, and it would be highly inappropriate for the Secret Service to ever let him out of their surveillance.
I saw the interview, and I thought it was interesting.
Beck was right on a few things, such as he overthinks. He really overthinks. In fact, he thinks himself into a corner and then can’t get out.
I think he also discovered that he thought his voice had more influence than it actually did.
I also think that he gave Tucker good advice on wanting fame for the sake of having fame.
Tucker doesn’t strike me as that type of person, however, whereas Megyn Kelly, for instance, does.
It also struck me that Beck realizes that people think he is a traitor. Perhaps a lot of people.
Good interview, Beck didn’t infuriate me as he normally does, and I was watching just waiting to be furious.
So, Glenn, I hope one day you are able to see where and when you got lost in the woods and then find your way out.
Now Beck is supposed to be a preacher? He’s certainly trying to act like one but he does look like he’s been either eating a lot or drinking a lot or both. Suddenly he’s talking about being “gentle with each other” and we somehow need to be “kinder” to Hillary supporters but they must first be made to howl to paraphrase the words of General William T. Sherman.

From the interview, “we should be humble and not try to tear each other apart.”
Yes, he had the nerve to say that after he savaged Trump.

You nailed it very well.
Beck said ‘Cruz was annointed for this time’ and ‘no real Christian would vote for Trump’.
Surprised that Tucker would even entertain the notion of a conversation with Captain Cupcake.
Funny thing is Beck is not Christian.
Glenn, Glenn, Glenn. You are about values and principles, and yet you supported the beast over Trump??
All I can say is that I continue to pray for our nation and our leadership. Beck supported hiLIARy in her quest for leadership of this country. How could I EVER trust Beck again?? I don’t.
I LOVE Carlson!! His facial expressions are fantastic.
This is one of the most refreshing interactions on TV that I’ve seen in ages. Carlson lets Beck talk. Amazing. Great questions.
But then he says, "G-d has not revealed Cruz as the divinely annoited alternative either."
To you, Dr. Kidd. To you.
To you, G-d hasn't revealed Cruz as divinely anointed. I understand that, I respect your opinion on it. But here's mine.
I have seen this man's life. I have watched this man. I have prayed about this man. I have prayed about it by myself, out loud, in quiet, with my family, with my staff... and I happen to believe that Ted Cruz actually was anointed for this time.
Would there not be someone that was in the pool, that might have the right qualifications for G-d, is he that disinterested in all of us?
Or is it perhaps possible that - just like in the Bible - people were raised from birth for a specific time. Are we that inconsequential, Dr. Kidd? Are we really not important enough for Him to raise someone up, at this critical juncture?
And now he says he "did not believe Ted Cruz was anointed" ?
How does he get there? Does that mean he bore false witness?
Beck strikes me as manic depressive. Less manic tonight.
BTW, who in their right mind thinks “brawl” is a proper descriptive for this exchange of views?
I saw the itherview.. it was hardly a braw
Glen Beck has finally realized that he is running out of friends and supporters and he needs to reinvent himself quickly.
The question is why would Carlson book Beck on his show?
No one cares what Beck, that loon says.
Thanks for posting. I used to be a very big Beck fan. I’ll never watch/consider/listen to this POS again as he called Trump supporters “brownshirts” on his radio show about 6 months ago. I was so infuriated I wrote it down (time and date) and then turned off my car radio. You don’t know my life Glenn Beck. I’d spit in your face if I ever met you. ESAD punk.
Beck calls himself a libertarian... I just think what passes for party Libertarian these days is not libertarian philosophically
Libertarians have strayed what used to pass as libertarian
From natural law protecting us from government law...to government laws supposed to protect us from natural law
I think Beck was terrified at the beginning of the interview. I think he was so guarded it was not funny. there was a sparing at the beginning where tucker tried to give beck enough rope to hang himself but beck a lot more savvy then other that tucker has taken on did not double down but carefully went in with draw on statements he has previously made. I think tucker saw this and that Glen Beck was being honest about his views and decided 2 to 3 minutes into the interview not go for the juggler on issues when Beck toned down the rhetoric and said we have to give Trump a chance.
Pastor Glenn Beck says Cruz sent by God.
Beck said, I never said he was anointed by God to be president of the United States.
Creepy Glenn Beck repeatedly says Ted Cruz is God’s anointed candidate...
Good point, he’s Mormon.
Not enough groveling, but Glenn did seem to have spent some introspective moments these last two months...
Glen Beck is one of the only talk show hosts who talks philosophy or fundamental ideas. Whether I agree with him or not, he offers more than a headline approach to daily events. I listen all the talk shows though. When the others cut to commercials or news, Beck doesn’t and so I tend to catch a few minutes during my commute.
He tends to be overly dramatic, IMO, but I would count him on the right side of Western Civilization.
What you saw was a fair amount of honesty in the face of the fact that all men are liars.
The headline is a little misleading. Brawl is overstates the case. Both parties were cordial to each other. Tucker deserves credit for asking Beck very direct, tough questions while remaining polite and civil. As far as Beck is concerned, he clearly understands that he`s completely lost his credability. What a drastic change in his demeanor from just a few years ago. He looked visibly shaken throughout the interview.
Better Mormon than Moslim.
Interestingly, that photo was snapped just shortly before she fell right flat on her face.
I was surprised to see that Carlson’s producer(s) saddled him with Beck as the opening segment on his new 9:00 PM show.
Is that the best they could do?
Carlson has had some great interviews on his show - this wasn’t one of them.
I watched some of it but had to give up as Beck has become unbearable.
I think Beck was a good choice for January, 2017. When I heard he was going to be on Carlson I was interested in what would transpire (although I was at work when it happened).
A concise reconciliation of (supposed ((in the case of Beck)) conservatives for a new year.
Carlson was exemplary. And Beck showed that he (sigh-as I had prayed for and hoped for success for him) was.. lost..
I get it. Beck supported Cruz (as I did). The primaries were a time to learn about the candidates. Instead, Beck froze on Cruz and refused to consider that Trump was the only way to overcome the uniparty of which Jeb was the totalitarian representative and designated winner. The fact that Trump outlasted the 16 + nominees means something (and not that Russia paved his way lol).
Beck is smart. I do believe that he tries to seek God. He will, at some point, begin to realize that Trump became president at this time for a reason (not a nefarious reason). (Personally, I can’t believe that anyone in the USA would desire that we would have a president with any ties to the uniparty.. which would lead to total annihilation of our country). I hope Beck wises up before it is too late.
That night was terrible.. I was so embarrassed FOR HER.
Asking the candidates how they felt as the debate started, it was so unprofessional. Would a man ask that question??
The beginning of the end for Megyn (me again) Kelly.
Beck is an idiot ...period
A rainmaker huckster who weaves whole cloth crap from morsels of truth
No conservative who searches for truth will bend a knee at the MLK altar
Reagan very reluctantly signed on the holiday for a damn good reason
You gonna burn down Chappaqua?
And salt the bike paths?
"Many are called, but few are chosen."
The result of our recent election was selection, eh?
“Beck is an idiot ...period”
I think he is deluded.
“No conservative who searches for truth will bend a knee at the MLK altar”
I don’t bend my knee to MLK, but I do believe what Reagan said about MLK- “So, each year on Martin Luther King Day, let us not only recall Dr. King, but rededicate ourselves to the Commandments he believed in and sought to live every day: Thou shall love thy God with all thy heart, and thou shall love thy neighbor as thyself. And I just have to believe that all of usif all of us, young and old, Republicans and Democrats, do all we can to live up to those Commandments, then we will see the day when Dr. King’s dream comes true, and in his words, “All of God’s children will be able to sing with new meaning, ‘... land where my fathers died, land of the pilgrim’s pride, from every mountainside, let freedom ring.’”
"Many are called, but few are chosen."
The result of our recent election was selection, eh?
I wanted to watch Carlson’s debut at 9, but when I saw Beck, I turned it off and watched netflix.
Glenn Beck is insane.
Close, but the way I would word it is He TALKS himself into a corner before he actually puts a lot of thought into what he is saying.
He has way too much air time to fill, covers way too many bases, and puts way to little time thinking and reflecting on how he wants to address most topics.
There was a time that I thought he had good some good points and seemed more “focused”, but anymore just seems to be desperately grasping at straws trying to stay relevant.
‘Yes, he had the nerve to say that after he savaged Trump.’
I thought the same thing. He was off the rails and off his rocker with the way he savaged Trump and he didn’t stop after the election was over. He certainly surprised me with his vicious hate that was worse than the liberals.
F#*k Beck. He’s been a kook for as long as I can remember.
